This is a superb, and unique Browning model 22 limited edition collectable hunting knife.

With this being one of the finest models bearing the Browning name.

This knife was commissioned by Browning to be a companion to the Browning Model 22 Firearm and is one of only 2000 made and very collectable.

This is beautifully crafted, and handmade and the knife offers quality, craftsmanship, and performance and is a fine custom knife.

Made by Seki in Japan and the very finest in Browning quality. This model was limited to 2,000 examples and was made around 1990 and they were expensive knives back then, usually priced in the $150-$200 USD range.

Like Solingen in Germany or Sheffield in England, Seki City has an 800+ year history of steel and blade making and is still home to a wealth of multi-generational, highly skilled craftsman. Seki is one of the world’s foremost hotbeds of high-quality knifemaking and is currently producing some of the finest knives on the planet and one of Japan’s most renowned makers is Ichiro Hattori who got his start in his father’s shop and then went on to make knives for Kershaw, SOG, Browning, Beretta, and many other before opening his own custom shop. Hattori was the contractor for this model and this knife graphically illustrates why his knives are so sought after. His knives are almost constantly sold out and although customers can be placed on a waiting list, no time table is given. Hattori is now in his 70’s and has always put quality and perfection before production. The knife has not been used, carried, or sharpened and remains in perfect condition.

The knife comes in its original padded suede storage case. The knife is just beautifully crafted and is of exceptional quality. The way these knives were made is more like a fine custom than a standard production knife. The attention to detail is outstanding! The knives were hand made by highly skilled craftsman and feature the finest in quality and superb fit & finish. This is one of the larger models and it’s also the only model I’m aware of that has a bead-blasted blade finish. The other knives are either mirror polished or have a bright satin finish. The thick blade was precisely ground and has a deep profile. The blade was aggressively ground and displays crisp, clean lines. Both sides of the blade were laser etched in a floral motif. The blade is very sharp and it will shave. The blade steel is likely AUS-8, although I’ve not been able to verify this. The blade has that certain premium-quality feel to it as well.

The guard was shaped from thick nickel silver and was beautifully executed and the handle is a hard wood of we believe either Cocobollo, Rosewood or Walnut.

*Couple of little storage/age marks on the Leather sheath.

A must for your collection and especially if you love Browning.
